Help on BC-200XLT Cell Mods...

Post by WmChur » Tue, 16 May 1995 04:00:00

I'm trying to modify my BC-200XLT but I am not sure I have the correct MOD
for the scanner... The Uniden IC Chip Says UC-1147A and I belive it's a
new version... Can this one be modified or have they put a halt to that?
I belive it was made in 1990 but can't be sure... Any help would be
appreciated...

Don't modify it! Just scan in the 903-917MHZ band, you'll get the cell
stuff just fine on the "image" freqs

I've found that the same is true for the BC700A.  From about 900mhz-920 mhz,
you can hear cellular calls.  The only problem is that this scanner also
likes to do the same for the 160-174 mhz band.  I can hear ham's talking
on the Federal govt band.  Likewise, I can hear the local police, who have
channels around 460mhz, talking around 480 mhz.  It makes it kind of
confusing when you're scanning a band for new frequencies.

I modified my Bearcat XLT200 myself with the diagram provided by the  
seller.  It now receives all the 800 freqs.  It's a great little machine  
that works overtime for me.  The mod was very simple.
